Hyundai Sonata Becomes Role Model For Nissan!

The sense of competition exists all over! You can catch it even if you are an important car manufacturer and you feel outran by another company.

The exact same thing happened to Nissan, which decided to take the example of the gorgeous, useful and affordable Sonata. Therefore they followed the same prints for Altima too.

According to Andy Palmer, Nissan’s executive vice president, Hyundai represented and important role-model in their decision to adjust Altima : “We even delayed development by a short amount just to check that the (new Altima’s) proportions were right, the (package) was right (and that) the product overall was right.”

It is good news for Hyundai, but they should watch out because, another competitor is on the way, and that is Toyota and its best seller Camry.

Strong competition, don’t you think?

Maybe you are wondering why Sonata? Well, why not, since it has been Hyundai’s third best seller in South Korea and the United States. An rumor has it that a fierce competition with Toyota is ready to keep us wondering.

And this is not all. We should also expect a revamped Hyundai Genesis in 2013.

Hyundai and NHTSA are Having Problems!

Fight!Fight!Fight!

It is not nice, I know, but every time I come across a situation like this, I get this weird blood-thirst. Just kidding! But let me put you up to date with the information.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) asked Hyundai to replace the center rear seat belts in over 14,000 Sonata Hybrids fabricated between 2011 and 2012, and they refused. OMG!

The big thing about it is that U.S. safety regulations prohibit using “a release mechanism that detaches both the lap and shoulder portion at the lower anchorage point,”  so the existent belts are built in a wrong manner.

Hyundai agreed to repair 1,600 hybrids which are still in storage, but the other 13,095 are not included in their plan, claiming that they do not represent a risk.

For now, they filed for an exemption, but if this is denied, Hyundai will have to track down all the cars and change the belts. Auch!

Let’s just hope NHTSA will take the right decision!

Car and Driver Made a Top 3

Honda Accord was designated the “perennial 10 Best Award winner”, but the guys from Car and Driver decided to challenge this result and create a new competition, in which Honda failed to win the first prize.

During this contest Honda had to face Hyundai Sonata and the newly redesigned  2012 Volkswagen Passat. They all look awesome and are equipped with the latest features, but at the test drive only one of them managed to convince that it has what it takes in order to win the race.

I don’t know if I should tell you who came first or let you watch the video and see for yourself. However, I am going to tell you that Honda was second in this top 3.
